Why Wedding Photography seems to be so expensive

Why Wedding Photography seems to be "expensive".

When someone books a wedding with us, they may not be aware that our true time commitment to our customer is sometimes , more than 40 hours.

 

2424 We want our customers to understand that a professional photographer does more than “just shoot and burn a disk”. The wedding day is just part of the beginning.
 As a profesional photographer always I always take or photos in camera RAW format. This means that our workflow after the wedding is a day or more to process the 800-1500 images. Yes, we do check / adjust each image for color balance, exposure, composition, etc as part of our processing. Then, we upload the entire wedding to the internet so family and friends can enjoy the photos. It takes quite a bit of time even with page templates and upload scripts to create/upload the 800-1500 thumbnail images, larger images.  1515
1010 A few months after the wedding our happily married couple contacts us to go over their initial selection(s) for inclusion into their album and for prints. Many times we meet again and go over the 1st draft list, then select album covers, inserts or work up album page layouts. After the due process the images go “off to the lab” for printing/processing etc. The appointments, lab transportation, phone calls, emails, etc add a significant amount of time to a wedding client/time/process.
Anyway, as you go through the process of selecting your photographer ,please consider how much time and commitment a professional photographer is including in you wedding photography job as you look at the cost for capturing your most special day...your wedding 88
